2 Million Additional 99ers in December

The 99ers community are those out-of-work men and women who have exhausted their unemployment benefits, which are currently capped at 99 weeks. Unless Congress authorizes an extension of UI benefits, 2 million Americans will be added to the list of exhaustees at the end of this month. Of note: nothing in any current proposal will extend benefits past 99 weeks. The 99ers community remains, figuratively and literally, out in the cold.
